Manchester United have been surprisingly quiet thus far into the summer window; alarmingly quiet for some. David Moyes is yet to really signal his arrival as the new manager, while failed bids for Cesc Fabregas and an apparent lack of interest in Thiago can only add to the frustration.
But, big-name signings can come in the form of young talents from across Europe. United have regularly been linked with some of the leading names in football, and there is no reason why any of them wouldn’t want to further their education at Old Trafford.
United have the pulling power, the financial backing and the history of taking youngsters to the next level. Picking one or two from the myriad of young talents currently available in Europe would be a perfect marker for Moyes’ intent at the club.
